‘Tiroli’ is the kids club mascot of austrian insurance company ‘Tiroler Versicherung’.
Living Liquid was asked if we could help transition ‘Tiroli’, which up to that point only existed as a 2D cartoon character, into the world of 3D.

It was quite a challenge to transfer ‘Tiroli’ into a 3D character because he’s essentially just a ball with arms and legs (much like Monsters Inc. Mike).

Cinema spot

Shortly after a successful transition to 3D, the client wanted a short cinema spot.
